Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script applications. It is very efficient for scripts with large source code and could accelerate such an Internet site up to three times. PHP sites are dynamic and each time a visitor opens a webpage, the script hooks up to a database to retrieve some content, after that the code is parsed and compiled before it's shown to the website visitor. In case the output code does not change however, that is the case with sites which show identical content all of the time, such actions trigger needless reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse an Internet site, so the database doesn't need to be accessed and the code does not need to be parsed and compiled repeatedly, which consequently lowers the site loading time. The module can be very helpful for informational websites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Website Hosting

APC is pre-installed on our state-of-the-art cloud platform, so you can use it for your web applications irrespective of the shared website hosting solution that you choose when you sign up. The module can be enabled from the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to maintain the shared accounts and only a couple of minutes later it'll speed up your websites because it will start caching their code. If you need to run Internet sites with different system requirements or employ specific web accelerators for some of them, you'll be able to customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you could enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the remaining websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP because our platform supports multiple versions simultaneously.

APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Semi-dedicated Hosting

APC is provided with all semi-dedicated hosting solutions as it is pre-installed on the cloud hosting platform where your account will be created. In case you would like to use this module, you will be able to activate it with a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel and it will be fully operational within a few minutes. Since you may need to use some other web accelerators for selected websites, our state-of-the-art platform will allow you to personalize the software environment inside your account. You will be able to activate APC for different versions of PHP or use it just for some websites and not for others. For instance, a Drupal-based website can function with APC using PHP 5.4 and a WordPress website can function without APC employing PHP 5.6. What is needed to do that is a php.ini file with a couple of lines in it, so you can run sites with various requirements inside the exact same account.
